Pursuant to statute, a Commission determination of admonition, censure, removal or retirement from office, and the record on which the determination is based, are filed with the Chief Judge of the Court of Appeals.  The Chief Judge thereafter serves the determination and the record on the respondent-judge.  The respondent-judge then has 30 days to accept the Commission's determination or request review of the determination by the Court of Appeals.  Such review is mandatory if requested.  If the respondent-judge accepts the determination or does not request review, the determination becomes final.

Court of Appeals reviews of disciplinary determinations rendered by the Commission have resulted in the following.  (Results are listed in both chronological and alphabetical order.)
